    I'm going through the same thing for my home forum. www.myhomescape.com

        I have a good cross section on my forums..I think the secret is not to have a multi-storey pile of rules, I allow peeps to use their homepage url frely and chat about other sites, all the sites I know that have rstricted this have not lasted long....I hate restrictions, so if I dont like em why should I impose em on others?...This is the most sensible forum I have come accross and is full of tips and advise, its a pity a lot of it goes over my head...

          I now have 542 members. Apparently, the stickers do work!

It's basically a a system that credits you for posting on other participant's forums, which moves you higher up on the list. Then others will post more on your forums (since you're high on the list) and you'll slowly move back down. The more you post on the other forums, the more that people will post on yours.

                It's still in the early stages, but I think it has great potential.

                    My Sig

                    Believe it or not, I am an active member on a few forums. As such, I keep the same user name & sig on all of them. It's called name recognition. Though I'm not always able to use the exsact name (Atlantis Services, AtlantisServices, or AtlantisService).

                    But I am sure to stay an active member and I don't just make useless post, just to spam myself all over the place. Like any good community member, I add to the forum and even help people when I can.

                            You may also be interested in a site i recently purchased called exchanger forums. Basically its a site for admins and moderators to actively encourage other site admins and moderators to do post and link exchanges. You post on their site, they post on yours. Its a great way to increase traffic and posts and hopefully gain some new users.

                            When i took it over the site had mis direction but i'm addressing this slowly. First thing i did was update to vbulletin (a must ) then set about redirecting the forums.

                            We are hoping it will become a site for admins and moderators to hang out and help each other.

                            Ive had it since friday 6th and already traffic and forum messages has increased. If we get enough active members on there it should really take off on promoting conversations to members forums.

                            Stop by and let me know what you think ...
